Because getting stuff done is productive

Tomayto, Tomahto…. If you creep up on my desk at any given moment, you could see one of many projects underway. I might be mocking something up in InDesign, or writing up an article in SharePoint. And  you definitely could see this guy on my screen:

Pomodoro Timer

Why is a bright red tomato on my screen, you ask? Great question! Because this guy helps me get. stuff. doooone. And I like that feeling! Don’t you? Since I write and design much of the day, attention to detail is critical. The occasional round of revisions is part of the gig, but I certainly prefer to get it done and right on the first review round.

Enter the Pomodoro Timer, a time management plug-in that makes getting stuff done well, done! Utilizing the Pomodoro Technique, this free timer helps create a pattern of focused work. Work 25 minutes, and then take a break, before launching back into another round of focused work. Pro tip: You can easily silence the ticking feature, in case it makes you a little twitchy, too.

The Pomodoro Technique works for me. What helps you get more stuff done?
